modern quilting

Moving Soon!

Boy oh boy, have things been crazy around here! Our busy time for t-shirt printing has begun – many summer events keep us working pretty constantly through September. While it’s great to pay some bills, it eats into my quilting time quite drastically.

I think because I can’t take a chunk of time to focus on my sewing, I start getting a little edgy. I really believe quilting is super-therapeutic… at least for me!
So I pushed myself to start working on my only UFO and finished a top! Here’s a pic of it almost finished:

It’s going to be a tall and skinny quilt at approximately: 56″ x 77″. I love the colors and the half-square-triangle section – the rest of it I’ve been piecing in my free time and it turned out pretty blocky – but I think it will look great as a throw quilt for a couch.

I started the back today. I’m using ALL the left-over fabric from the front, and I may need to add one more yard of something to fill it all in – but I’m having fun with the challenge.

Recently, I’ve been made aware that my comment section may not be working properly (Thanks Dawn!)… and I’m kind of hoping that’s the case since I haven’t had much feedback lately. When checking with Blogger, I realized there is no real customer service, and I can’t seem to get it figured out.

I am moving my blog soon to a WordPress format. It shouldn’t affect anything on your end, but I’ll have better control over both content and dealing with issues like the comment section not working!

With the blog switch, I’ll be introducing a new section for hexie tutorials and patterns! It’s something I’ve been working on for a few months, and I’m so excited to show my work – it’s just so hard to wait until the full finish sometimes! I’m hoping to unveil it all soon.

Thanks Dawn, it was you who inspired me to move it… and when I did, I found quite a few comments that weren’t showing up on my old blog – so it’s already much better! I also like having control over content 🙂
